Welcome Back Lisa Hughes

This week we welcomed Lisa Hughes back to the Barden family!

Lisa took a sabbatical from Barden and spent the last 9 months travelling and working in Australia and New Zealand.

During her time in Australia, Lisa was a Specialist Recruiter in commerce, industry, audit, risk and compliance with T+O+M Executive. T+O+M Executive is Sydney’s leading specialist recruitment firm especially in the are of experienced audit, risk and compliance professionals to the Australian Financial Services Industry.

“Prior to moving to Sydney and joining T+O+M Executive, I supported the recently qualified accounting and finance market for those seeking accounting roles in Ireland, having qualified as a Chartered Accountant in 2015. I completed my training contract in KPMG‘s financial services audit department, working predominantly on aircraft leasing clients and advisory assignments. In Sydney, I spent 6 months working mainly with recently qualified accountants within the commerce, industry, audit, risk and compliance space. I am thrilled to have gained international experience and to have worked with so many great recruiters on the other side of the world.”

“I had an amazing time away and feel very refreshed after the few months of travelling! I made some great friends in Sydney, particularly in T+O+M, and look back very fondly on the last 9 months. I am delighted to be home though, made easier by knowing I was returning to a job I loved and people I loved working with.”

Lisa is a Senior Associate and expert in recently qualified accounting careers. Prior to joining us she completed a Bachelor of Science (BSc) in UCC, gained her ACA qualification through training with KPMG and went on to complete a Diploma in IFRS from Chartered Accountants Ireland.

“We’re so delighted to welcome Lisa Hughes back to Barden family in Dublin.  KPMG trained, Lisa worked with us for nearly 3 years before taking a sabbatical to do a little travelling – something everyone should do at some stage in my book! Lisa’s positivity, smarts, emotional intelligence, intuitive understanding of the accounting space, her strong grasp of the Barden Career model, her unwavering work ethic and her real passion for the recruitment profession is what makes her best in class in what she does  This, coupled with the fact that she’s great fun to work with, makes her Barden.  Welcome back Lisa!  Here’s to 2019 and beyond!”Elaine Brady | Managing Partner | Barden Dublin

Delighted to have you back Lisa!
